It’s that time again… to share how our customers campaigns have been performing and our roundup of the best landing pages for the month of September 2014!
First, our combined customer analytics…
September Leads Generated
Our proudest public metric. These are the number of quality leads that KickoffLabs generated for our customers during the month of September.
September Conversion Rate
Our free plan has really been taking off and growing in popularity! That’s mirific, we want everyone to access KickoffLabs powerful lead generation tools. But with that unfortunately comes a slight drop in our overall customer conversion rate.
It’s a real shame, especially when anyone can easily get a professional landing page review from our team for FREE.
September Viral Boost
Over half of all signups this month we’re sharing their unique referral link with their friends! Goes to show that simply asking for the share can drive more referral traffic to your signup page.
September Age Groups
This is how age groups were distributed:
- 25-34 & 35-44 yr olds consistently hold the top age groups.
- Steady increase in engagement from older demographics.
The female demographic has been steadily climbing month per month, where now we normally see a +70% of the demographic share.
While men are more active on social networks with less sharing going on:
If you’re wondering how we’re getting the demographic data, KickoffLabs has a feature called Magic Contact Data that automatically takes customer email addresses and fills in missing data such as Twitter names, Facebook profiles, biography, current employer, and even their full names. Services normally charge ONLY for this service, BUT comes included with any paid KickoffLabs account ;)
September’s Favorite Pages
We might have packed too many pages into this month’s best, but there were just so many great contest, signup and launch pages that we couldn’t resist sharing them all with you.
The best contest landing pages
Companies large and small were using contests as an incentive to drive a large amount signups of our customers combined signups…
Why we like it: Besides being coffee lovers ourselves, the page is doesn’t need much copy to describe what people are signing up for.
& Flat Box – Light themes… who can blame them, they look stunning!
Why we like it: Uses great background images to engage visitors
Why we like it: We love seeing innovative products being boosted by our platform.
Why we like it: It’s a beautiful page that aside from capturing prospects information, they are looking to educate their audience.
Why we like it: Red is always a bold color choice but works well for this page, it POPS!
Why we like it:
- They associate with a well known brand name, Walmart.
- The CTA is hard to miss.
- Steps work well for directing your visitors actions.
Why we like it: John (the guy in the photograph) is signaling to the eye-catching copy and CTA, “hey, sign up for this”.
Why we like it: By getting people to use their energy calculators to obtain contest answers, they are driving engagement with their mobile apps.
Why we like it: They only ask for an email address. That and the call-to-action text says “Win!”.
The Best Incentivized Landing Pages
Not only was September the month of awesome contests, it was also a month packed with great signup incentives…
Why we like it: This is exactly the kind of incentive that can drive a ton of signups… I may not fully understand the language (it’s Portuguese), but I like how the visual is clearly tied to the free ebook download. And the way they portray the ebook as a solution to one of the most dreaded tasks… an exam.
Why we like it: Proves how easy it is to implement a viral form into your current site!
Why we like it: Uses logos as trust factors. It’s okay if their only from the resources.
Why we like it: Integrates perfectly with their current site. They’re also helping with the development of their country, which in itself a great accomplishment.
Why we like it: Even though this page is for a company specializing in patios & walkways, they are using a proven layout for getting people’s email address and information.
They are taking the classic catalog to a new level and treating it as incentivized ebook download. That’s pretty smart!
Why we like it:
- They use a great background image that directs attention to the eye-catching call-to-action button.
- The copy is brief, yet informative.
- Use of a valuable time-based incentive.
The Best Overall Landing Pages
Why we like it: The page is simple, has a great headline and just the right amount of copy. The CTA button text is relative to the action being taken, “Sell my stuff for me!”.
2. Using our Flat Box theme, new clothing line designer Gregory Martin created a very simple, yet effective launch page.
Why we like it: The simplicity of the signup page conveys an aura of elegance to the brand.
Why we like it: All the elements and copy are optimally sized. The color choice is also spot on, in my opinion.
Why we like it: Using cheerful images and plenty of whitespace help bring this landing page to life!
Why we like it: Despite the KickoffLabs branding (hey, it’s a free account), the rest of the page is actually very nicely designed. Simple, great background image choice, and a CTA that is easy to see.
6. EasyEyeTracking customized our The Art of Sales theme to perfectly fit their business needs.
Why we like it: We really love how they turned our theme into a full blown launch home page that looks great and is incredibly effective.

Contests were the reigning champ for this month, and it’s no surprise… with KickoffLabs built-in viral features businesses get the advantage of leveraging their audience’s social network for an even greater boost in signups.
